Using Dokany instead of WebDAV could solve / avoid the Windows problems tagged with misc:webdav

Would this also solve #80 ? That would finally make Cryptomator usable on Windows when you have a small system partition as I do. IIRC Boxcryptor (1.x or 2.x?) uses Dokan (related to Dokany?) and it works on Windows.

Did you consider the idea of switching to Winfsp instead of Dokany?
On paper (but I haven't tried it yet) it looks a better option:

Yes, WinFsp has been suggested in #339. Congrats on the 1.0 release @billziss-gh! 👍 It looks very promising.

We haven't made any final decisions yet, so we'll have to see, which library works out best for Cryptomator. :)

Hello,
because some programs can not save on webdav drives I need an other solution than webdav.
What is the status of the dokany implementation or will you change to WinFsp?
Only with webdav, cryptomator is not really useful on windows.

BTW, for those interested jnr-fuse now supports Windows and WinFsp.

Restart no longer required, when changing preferred volume type.

Good news, everyone! We've released version 1.4.0-beta2, which introduces Dokany support. You now have the choice between Dokany and WebDAV based virtual hard drives.

If you experience any issues, please report them and tell us what software version (including Windows version) you're using.

⚠️ This is a beta version! Make backups and don't use this version for production data. ⚠️
